    I moved my cPanel installation to a VPS and am getting a lot of brute force attacks. I had root login notifications enabled for a little while and got emails about root login from ip <blank> under PAM authentication with username system. My concern about this is that the IP address is not provided. What does this mean? I get this email a lot, even when I'm not messing with cPanel or logging in. Additionally, I would like suggestions on what cphulk settings to use. Here's what I currently have:

    Thanks in advance,

    Do you see the IP in the History Report? I suggest you enable the two check boxes at bottom you've got unchecked. Also be sure you've got your own IP whitelisted.

    I thought that only showed failed logins. These are for successful ones:
